Events for this coming weekend, 19-21st May

Well after last weekend’s mammoth list of mainly runs, this weekend is a little bit more manageable on the events front. We have eight listed – there may well be more, but these are the ones we were notified of. If you are holding an event, please do email us at to get it listed in the magazine completely free, and be listed here on the week of your event.

Highlights for this weekend kick off with a new event in Limerick this Sunday. The Greenmount Family Fun Day is being run by Limerick Motor Club, not to be confused with Limerick Vintage & Classic Car Club, who used to hold a show at the same venue at Limerick Racecourse. This new event is raising funds for the Motorsport Ireland Benevolent Fund, and while it will be motorsport themed it will also have a vintage and classic display as well as lots of live action on the day. It looks well worth checking out, and for more details you can find it on Facebook as Greenmount Motorsport Bonanza or call 087 25517501.

Although predominantly billed as a motorsport show, vintage and classic machines are welcomed at this all-new event at Limerick Racecourse.

Malahide is the place to be if your on the East Coast as the highly regarded Malahide Classic & Vintage Motor Show will take place on the grounds of the Grand Hotel in Malahide this Sunday the 21st. The event is sponsored by Carole Nash Insurance and is ranked very highly among those that have attended in the past for the standard of its exhibits, so it’s well worth checking out. Again, you’ll find more details and updates on the show on its Facebook page or by calling Brian on 086 6087120.

The Malahide show attracts many top-notch exhibits every year, many of which you won’t see at other events elsewhere in the country.

Aside from these two shows there are a number of runs taking place too, all of which we have listed below. Once again, all we can say is get out and enjoy our hobby as best you can, and we hope the sun shines on all this weekend’s events.
